Abstract

For many years there have been lay people, philosophers and scientists who have made the distinction between affect and cold cognition. This paper examines the potential value of this dichotomy in relation to understanding ventromedial lesion (VMF) patients behaviour in general and on the Iowa Gambling Task (IGT). We use a combination of dual-process and somatic-marker theories and infer-ences based on simulations of normal controls and VMF patients on the IGT.
